. governor romney really engaging with him, engaging with the audience. president obama looking down through a lot of the debate. i actually had this memory of 2008 where remember the first debate with obama and john mccain where mccain did not make eye contact through much of the debate with obama. we talked about that a lot. obama not making eye contact with romney a lot. looking down, surprised by romney's strength. and just monot engaged. >> so he was intense. he leaned in. it was like he had a lot of coffee before the debate. and he just was going after the president. my question for you, joe, is why can't he transfer this to the campaign trail? why wouldn't that work? it was great. >> i think that's what everybody said last night. i think he was very comfortable last night talking about facts, talking about information. i don't think -- >> he wasn't explaining a lot of stuff. >> going to chipotle just hanging out with the kids. i'm dead serious. >> i'm talking about speeches and rallies, and there are things people want to hear. i bet you the americans watching last night are the same
term. he just tried to talk romney down. and the numbers are a moment where he's going to have to do that and say why are these numbers bad and why will they be better if you re-elect me? >> gene, both camps have not really talked about the next four years. the romney people have been open about it up until recently when i think "the wall street journal" and a lot of conservatives have smoked them out, so they're getting a little more specific on deductions and a few other issues. but you could say the same thing about the president's team. they made the calculated decision to not talk about what they're going to do over the next four years. and that puts an incumbent in the position to do nothing but defend the last four years, doesn't it? >> well, it seems to me, look, what do people want to hear? i mean, really, what do people want to hear? why are they going to vote for one candidate or the other? it's what they're going to do over the next term. you know, we said on this program months and months ago that the winner of this election would be or at least should be the candidate w

was born down in mexico. their fortunes were destroyed. romney can't really talk about his mormonism because that was the family secret. that's fascinating to me. we wonder why is romney so careful about what people call the hidden man and a lot of people said that's why. >> you also look into president obama's childhood, which is described as unsettling. >> feel about him in 2008, this same film, the choice x about him them. the deep er we dug into indonesia, into an 18-year-old mom who basically raised obama -- he doesn't speak the language. he's black. black is not good in independon. by 10, he's really on his own, living with his two white grandparents. >> it's hard to really get your arms around that. did he love his grandmother? z >> oh, yes. attachment was there. was there resentment? because a lot of kids get sent to their grandparents. i'm reading pete townsend's biography. >> the thing that comes out of the film tomorrow night, grandfather, alcoholic. grandmother, one of those alcoholics who comes home after work as a vice president at the local bank and herself drinks a lo

government benefits are down on their luck, out of a job, in school. that's the part that mitt romney left out and that has really hurt him, as we were talking earlier. and that's why we expect president obama to come back to the 47% figure again and again in tonight's debate. >> we're going to see that tonight for sure. mike allen, look forward to talking to you about it tomorrow morning. thanks so much, mike. >> thank you for your coverage. >>> coming up, one game left in the major league season. a lot of question marks still in the playoff picture. who better to ask? we woke him up early. our friend peter gammons joins us next on "morning joe." ♪ [ construction sounds ] ♪ [ watch ticking ] [ engine revs ] come in. ♪ got the coffee. that was fast. we're outta here. ♪ [ engine revs ] ♪ this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta
want me to narrow my answers down to 90 seconds? >> especially incumbent. >> two minutes? i'm really way above this, fellas. >> two things would be game changers tonight. if suddenly barack obama says you're likeable enough, mitt, or if mitt romney says i'll bet you $10,000 that you're wrong on that, you know, it's interesting, joe. i somewhat disagree with mark. i looked at debates from 1960 on. what is really remarkable is how little they changed things. they have little impact. in 2004 everybody said john kerry got the best of those. >> he was up after the first one. >> no, he was not. i've got the data right here. the only debate where there was any movement beyond two or three points from the start of the debates till the end was 1976. jerry ford moved ten points, and he made one of the great faux p pases in any debate. it doesn't have the effect that people think that it has. i think there are five things that make a difference. conventions matter a lot. the predicate, where you are in the summer beforehand, the kind of campaign you run and the kind of paid media you have. i th
